WATTS MILLS CARNIVAL
A IUGE SUCCESS
Handsome Sum Realized and Every
body had a Big TIne. Beniefit of
"The earnival at Watts Mills was a
howling success both in regard to fun
and funds" Is the way a yoting lady
described the carnival held at the
Watts 'Mills village last Saturday af
ternoon and evening. From all re
ports, the graie)Ic description of the
occasion, given by the young lady does
it neither justice nor injustice, for all
hands had one 'fine, jolly time, and as
before intimated, the financial results
were equally gratifying.
From all accounts the fortune tell
er, Madame La Tona was a headliner
of the evening. Again quoting the
young lady, "Mndame La Tona was all
that could be expected.". Some of her
customers were so gripped by the
startling exposures of past, present
and future lives that they "had it done
over tbwo or three times," each time
going away pleased but not content.
The fish pond also proved a source of
much merriment and profit, In this
fish pond the principal amusement
was centered around a goose and not
a fish. The fish, it seemed, were on
the outside feeding the goose twith
dimes to the amount of quite a few
dollars. There was some other fun
about this than spending the dime,
however, and everybody was pleased
here too. In fact, as already said,
they were pleased every-where they
The carnival was given by the peo
ple of the village and the proceeds will
be devoted to the community library.
